UK to ban foreign care workers from bringing dependents; imposes higher salary threshold for visas
The new rules include a much higher salary threshold for foreign workers to access skilled visas. Other measures included stopping foreign health workers bringing in family members on their visas increasing a surcharge migrants have to pay to use the health service by 66 per cent, and raising the minimum income for family visas. Indian nationals represent the largest group of students granted leave to in the post-study Graduate visa rout. The group also has the second highest number of dependents in the UK.
UK Home Secretary delivered a statement in the House of Commons to reveal that under the crackdown, which will also impact Indians, medics on Health and Care visas will no longer be able to bring any family members with them.
